The Lost World


Published May 12, 2007


Librivox recording of The Lost World

The Lost World is a 1912 novel by Arthur Conan Doyle concerning an expedition to a plateau (native name is Tepuyes) in South America (Venezuela) where prehistoric animals (dinosaurs and other extinct creatures) still survive. The character of Professor Challenger was introduced in this book. Interestingly, for a seminal work of dinosaur-related fiction, the reptiles only occupy a small portion of the narrative. Much more time is devoted to a war between early human hominids and a vicious tribe of ape-like creatures. Summary from Wikipedia

Subject: Excellent story!!
As stated above this was very enjoyable! Got into it so much that I listened to the last ten chapters in one a continuous session!! Many of these fine old stories are ageless and seem contemporary to this old 54 yr old.
These readers all do a great job! Many thanks to those at LibriVox and espcially Mr Prelinger, who make all of this possible!

Subject: Very Enjoyable
Thank you all for your work on this project.

two comments: volume differences in different chapters.

Chapter 15: there is an editing miss from 31:59 to 32:04 - in which the reader indicates he will cut it out but it didn't get cut.

Many thanks again, wonderful reading!
